Fantastic co-op game

NinjaCatfish | Dec. 31, 2011 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

I didn't expect much from this game, only grabbed it since it was on sale and might be a bit of fun co-op. It was, quite a bit of fun in co-op! The hack and slash gameplay is immensely satisfying, with every hit evoking a hefty sound and enemies reacting realistically. It really feels like you make a hit rather than just flail a weapon in the direction of an enemy until they go away. The level-up and inventory system is somewhat reminiscent of a refined Diablo. Inventory is much easier to manage, and the skills gained through level up are varied and mostly quite useful. They allow you to develop your character to your play style. Highly recommended if you have a buddy or 2 to co-op with.
